    Approximately 45 million Americans have IQ's below 81.  It's not their fault.  They were born that way.

    They still sound better than any sand state amplifier ever made.  Hollow State forever.

    About a million years ago I was building custom tube guitar amps using all the old Fender circuits as a basis.  Anyway, I used forstner bits to cut the socket and potentiometer shaft holes in 16 and 14 gauge aluminum chassis.  Even the plain high speed steel forstner bits held up great in 5054 aluminum.  Much better than cutting some hardwoods like teak and beech.  Drill press and lots of lubricant. Rapid Tap Aluminum lube.

    Pull the arbor out of the hole saw and push the plug out from the back with a screwdriver working side to side a little at a time.

    They'll arrest you around here if you dig a well without a permit.  Water is scarce and folks have died for it.

    Don't you need a type rating for a jet??  I know for a pure jet you do but I'm not sure it extends to turbo prop.  Soooooooo.  On top of fuel burn and initial outlay you have to develop a syllabus for a type rating and get it approved by the Feds?

    I'm here for a look see I suppose.  I could drive out there for somebody.  It's about 35-40 minutes away between brush fires.

    Brian and Carol Carpenter flew a Quicksilver with a 447 for 450 hours without a teardown or incident.  With oil injection!  Yours is also already registered. And you have a trailer too.  Hmmmm.  I'm at 5000' and it's been 85F at 6AM around here.

    I saw that on Barnstormers.  It looks great.  The 447 though.  And it's in MN.  How do you like it?

    I guess the problem with Airdale is the lack of communication.  A public post explaining the situation would be better than dead silence.  I think you're right though Leni, none of these one man shops make it.  I'm thinking Sky Raider, Ridgerunner, Airdale, and hundreds of others that are just a memory.  The Buttercup guy is selling plans and somebody else is making fuselages.  The Skyote folks are doing it piecemeal too.  If the Airdale guy would farm some stuff out maybe at least repairs could be made.  But nobody will make any money, that's for sure.

    New idea, new idea.

    I need to go see this one.  Anybody want to go?  I'm in Reno NV and would need to trailer it back.  The engine was bought new for the kit then run a few times ( taxi only of course ) and then has sat around for 16 years.  I imagine the tanks should be cleaned, hoses changed, carb confronted, tires checked and general quality assessed.  The current owner is the original builder and the airplane is not an airplane yet.  No N# no registration.  I'll need to talk to my local FAA mech dude and see if he'll call it parts.  I know it's not an AvidFox but it would never have existed without Avid as the inspiration.  Ship the engine off to Rotax Rick, put a starter and electrical system in it and I'll finally be back in the air.

    Thanks ED:  I must have taken a wrong turn someplace in the members database.  This is the dude I got mixed up:

    There are about 477 posts by High Country and I haven't gone through them all to see what he did on that airplane.

    You back in the sandbox again?  Probably can't say eh.   Anyway, High Country is Nick Lappos who took his MKiV from Cal to Conn.  I would like to see that build thread if somebody can find it.  Otherwise maybe a PM to exchange e-mails or text messages with Robert Hast.

    I wonder about that too.  The 912 that I flew was a brick at idle.

    I did question the short flaperons.  About half the airplanes on Barnstormers are not described correctly.  Thanks for the heads up.  Ivo props don't impress either......so a $16K bird soon becomes a $?? bird.

    Is this the one? So many doubts.
    Here's a link to a new listing this morning on Barnstormers.  I guess my first question relates to the gear.  Isn't the object to get bigger tires on the ground?   That gear looks too tall to me.  I know Joey's airplane is on similar gear but why did this seller put such small tires on those too tall legs.  I dunno.  I'm also 2 smoke adverse, but there are plenty of folks I respect on this forum who swear by them.  And of course some who swear at them too.  That's a good price I think on that airplane.  Isn't it?

  18. Emory Bored added a post in a topic Finally starting new hangar!   

    I was going to start a hangar thread, but this one does it.  I do have questions though. 
    What are you guys paying for the building? From whom? I think 44 by 36 will be big enough for me.  
    What are you paying for the door? From whom?
    I currently rent at Reno Stead and the owner just informed me that he'll start selling out his hangars in the near future.  He asked me if I would buy mine and I asked how much? He more or less said something like "as much as I can get".   He's 81 y/o, a retired Pan Am captain with a much younger wife.  I'm sure he's thinking of her well being going forward.  Not mine.  Probably about $80K+. Anyway, we think the Greater Reno Area has been Kalifornicated to the point where all the charm of living here is gone.  Sixty miles up the road is a little town called Fallon.  Home of the Navy's Top Gun School.  They have a little muni airport there where you can lease the ground for ten cents a square foot per year.  I'm not sure yet of the details but there are a lot of options in the area for building a home.  We may move.  I'm 67 now though and all that work is scary to say the least.  I think I may have one more house in me but the hangar building and concrete I'll have to hire out.  Like some of you I spent a lifetime in construction.  We'll see.  
    Hey Mark.  Photos of the finished project with airplanes inside?

    Richard I think your airplane is just great.  I heard about the BMW conversions several years ago.  I think there is even a commercial supplier.  As I recall some of the first were in powered gliders and they were priced in about the same range as the Rotax engines and are just a smidge heavier.  Parts are sure as heck cheaper.  
    A nice looking bird all around.

    I can't explain it Ed but I talked to Sterba one time about these mysteries.   One would think that your speed would be equal to the prop pitch multiplied by the RPM but it ain't so.  It goes faster.  Has something to do with what sailors call apparent wind.....or something.

    I would be more interested in the WEIGHT comparison.   Torque is multiplied in the gearbox.

    I had something like that on my '41 Luscombe and I hated it.  Any upset due to turbulence required re-trimming.  Maybe they have new fangled springs in this thing.  It certainly looks nice.

    Lostman sir:  Just in case you may have missed the humor in my extraordinarily well developed sardonic comment please accept my apology.  I admire a man of your pluck and courage.  Some might quail at such a long flight in so tiny a craft but I think it's a great undertaking.  My comments about wild animal parts notwithstanding the cargo pod is a terrific addition and I'm sure will re-pay handsomely the time and funds you've devoted to it's development and installation.  Some wag might observe that a bird such as yours, though surely safe and comfortable for a flight of perhaps a mile, would hardly be adequate or even sane for a journey of 2100 of same.  Au Contraire Mes Amis!  For every journey of 2100 miles begins with a single step etc. etc.  So lots of photos and a travel log are of course requested.  An acquaintance of mine who lives in the wilds and flies off his driveway uses a 9 gallon reinforced rubber bladder to carry additional fuel for his S7S.  I very much doubt that you would find room for a like container filled in the Teeny Two but something similar may perhaps be jammed somewhere empty in the event that you should find yourself afoot and within walking distance of the odd fuel emporium.  
    I hope they're not paying this fellow by the pound......
